Back in October '13, somewhere in excess of 150 million passwords were stolen in an Adobe data breach. Is there a way I can find out if I was one of the “lucky” ones?

Go to haveibeenpwned.com and enter your email address. You do not need to enter your password (nor should you, so run away quickly from any site that asks for your email password). I checked mine, and yes, I was one of those 150,000,000 affected.
